around for some beauty products. then decided to leave. bill: we are waiting for u.n. ambassador susan rice. she is back on capitol hill. yesterday she met with three top republicans who all said they were more disturbed about the situation after the meeting than they were when the meeting started. have a listen. >> i'm more convinced than ever, it was bad, it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama 3 weeks before an election. bill: that was behind sa -- that was lindsey graham. you are on the record saying you will not support her if she is nominated for secretary of state. but not just because of libya. what is the problem. >> let me clarify that. my first thought is what if susan rice was thrown under the bus and they all knew she didn't have the information from the cia. then i thought you would have to feel sorry for her. since yesterday talking to some of those to whom she talked i'm convinced in my mind that she is part of the coverup, she knew all the time the cia information that was given to her. but your point is very good. i
right now in a new round of senate meetings for u.n. susan rice. she is going back after yesterday, it didn't go so well, she is going back. she will answer questions about the white house response to the consulate attack in benge, libya on 9/11 of this year. many political observers think she is trying to win supporters for a possible nomination of secretary of state. she would have to be confirmed in the senate. senator bob corker earlier said miss rice's statements may prove she is too political. the meeting between susan collins, she expressed concerns too. she is not known as a republican fire brand but she expressed concerns. these meetings come a day after three top republicans said they were more concerned about libya now after meeting with rice than ever before. here is senator collins a short time ago. >> i asked ambassador rice why she did not qualify her comments more, in light of this contradictory reporting from the president of the country. her answer was that she relied on our intelligence analysis. i don't understand why she would not have at least qualified her re

. but the person who is really taking the heat for that is our u.n. ambassador susan rice. you know, obviously there's been a lot of criticism of her. i think there's been a lot of attempts to make it clear she did exactly what anybody in her position would have done, with those talking points, given the situation we were in on that sunday when she went on the sunday shows. you know, some of the members of the congressional black caucus have raised the question, you know, would republicans be -- using a different tone if the ambassador -- the u.n. ambassador was white? here was senator graham's response. i want to play that and then let's talk about it. >> guys like you are being criticized by, for instance, members much the congressional black caucus, they say that you and john mccain are sexist and racists as well for criticizing ambassador rice. >> well, when you can't answer the question, you attack the questioner. the only color i'm worried about when it comes to benghazi is red, blood red. >> you know, congresswoman, i'll tell you what strikes me is i'm a little cautious about getting in
of susan rice, the u.n. ambassador who was on this program and others and talking about the fact that it seemed to be more spontaneous, the attack on the consulate in benghazi. and this has been thoroughly litigated. she responded to those who said that she willfully misled the public by saying it was spontaneous rather than what we know it was now, which was an attack on our consulate. these were her comments on wednesday. >> as a senior u.s. diplomat, i agreed to a white house request to appear on the sunday shows to talk about the full range of national security issues of the day, which at that time were primarily and particularly the protests that were enveloping and threatening many diplomatic facilities. when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary. and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> do you accept that, congressman? >> no, i don't. first, let me say, i think susan rice has done an
marcia fudge lashing out at the critics of u.n. ambassador susan rice suggesting their attacks are sexist and racist. standing right behind her was my next guest, california democratic congresswoman karen bass, who is also a member of the budget and foreign affairs committee. nice enough to wake up this early for us. good morning to you. >> thank you. thanks for having me on. good morning to you as well. >> obviously there is a lot being talked about with susan rice. 97 colleagues wrote a letter to president obama urging him not necessarily to push her nomination forward if it were to come up for secretary of state. do you think that that letter is based on racism and sexism? >> i think there are multiple issues and probably not. and i do think the letter is interesting. we started circulating a letter, too, and within 24 hours got over 60 signatures. and when we get started again, i know we can go above that. it makes no sense to have signature gathering wars from the house when we have no say over the nomination but, you know, i think about it this way. our ambassador who is still the u
for susan rice. let's actually take a listen to them. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who this nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmurch her reputation is outrageous. when they gt after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> so, first of all, bes is suhsh is great word. prior to that press conference i was am bif lent to secretary of state. i like john kerry and sue glan rice. after i saul the president go to bat for her and point out how outrageous these attacks on her having, i am more inclined to want to see susan rice in that position, which also leads me to the conclusion. john mccain, if his ultimate goem w goal was to keep susan rice from secretary of state it seems he's made a tactical error. he backed the president into a corner and made it to appear weak and trying to placate mccain and graham and ayotte instead of going with the person that he really wants to see in the position. >> reporter: i mean, you've se
as part of her position in the u.n. and, in fact, reviewed the briefings that contained the references to al qaeda that individuals with ties to al qaeda were involved. and then yet, went on the sunday show and left a very different impression. let's not forget that on those sunday shows on "meet the press" as well as "face the nation" she also made the statement that al qaeda was decimated. and so it left a misleading impression to the american people. i was also troubled that they knew by the 21st the acting director of the cia said that the information about the reaction to the video and the protest was wrong and that no one corrected it, including ambassador rice, even though she had left that impression on every single network, op every sunday show. that left me very concerned about that as well. >> did she say to you that she had reviewed intelligence specifically about benghazi, that had the additional information? she couldn't say so publicly. had she reviewed that intelligence? did she affirm that to you or are you assuming that she had? >> she did review it. >> so, in other w
committee. congressman, good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> u.n. representative cole sent a letter to president morsi asking him to refrain from giving hamas cover to intensify its attacks by allowing egyptian delegations to visit gaza. of course, morsi has been a major player in these truce negotiations. do you think he's sending a mixed message? >> well, he is sending a mixed message. you know, i hope that president morsi is able to play a constructive role. but when high-level delegations of egyptians go into gaza under the pretense of a cease-fire and then terrorist groups violate that cease fire, if israel were to defend itself and members of the delegation was tragically hurt in that attack, we do not want that to be used as a pretense to violate the egyptian/israeli peace treaty. one other thing on this, chris. look, there's a fundamental truth here. i was on the border of gaza and israel in august of 2005 when israel unilaterally and without any preconditions left gaza. actually went in and asked jews this in there to leave. they said here is the land, build something with
to the u.n. dan gillerman will be with us moments away. he will give us his perspective coming up. bill: a surprise announcement from israel. president ehud barak says he is quit politics but will stay on after the january elections in israel. often seen as a moderating force and in considering possible military action. he is 70 years old. he says he wants to spend more time with his family. that news out of israel. martha: it is a very busy morning here in "america's newsroom.". ahead evidence iran has used the recent israel-gaza crisis as a bit of distraction from the rest of the world. we have details on secret operations ahead in a fox news exclusive. bill: was this a white house cover up after the days after the attacks in benghazi and the days before? there are new allegations from leading republicans on that. kt mcfarland will break it down. >> it is assumed the proportions of any other major scandal in this town. there are many layers to the onions. there are all kinds of questions that have been raises i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i
ambassador to the u.n. what about what's going on in the u.n. this week? with the palestinians looking to have their status -- there's an entire agenda. the idea that we're focusing on one set of talking points is ridiculous. >> i know you to be a pretty nonpartisan guy, do you smell anything fishy with this benghazi investigation or the way it was handled? do you sense any incompetence? because if you talk to john mccain or lindsey graham, you ask the question, are we talking about a cover-up or general inconfidence? >> the idea was, why did they turn down the all the added security? why did the ambassador go without adequate security? that's a real issue. why were these decisions made? the question, then, of the talking points, what did the cia provide, why was the intelligence community late in apparently getting the points right? it's not the first time we've seen things like that. it's worth looking at. but the idea that a month later, we're still focusing on this rather than basic questions of foreign policy on how to deal with terrorism in these areas. seems to me we are missing
, it just adds to these continuing layers of a narrative. if we are to expect that the u.n. ambassador, potentially the future secretary of state didn't have access and wasn't involved in discussions five days on from the attacks talking about the scenario of the terrorists the fact that there was no protest she talked about sunday morning show, then we have a serious problem. >> the picture in your head is she is handed a packet of paper. she reads it over, says thank you and goes and delivers it to the media. is that how it works? there is some sort of briefing, it's more than papers there is a discussion about what happened in which someone that is going to be the secretary of state should ask questions. correct? >> right. absolutely much the idea that somehow, you know, she slipped one page briefing memo with some talking points that by the way have been edited constantly apparently since the cia produced the basic intelligence, the raw intelligence from the field talking about what had been happening, it doesn't add up. and nothing happens in washington, you know, in a bubble. it'
provided by the intelligence community. >> well, susan rice, the u.n. ambassador confronting major critics on capitol hill. she is in line for possible nomination to secretary of state position. she met with lindsey graham, john mccain, kelly ayotte who said we respectfully disagree with the white house statement that there are no unanswered question about ambassador rice's sunday appearance. they talk about the acting director of the c.i.a. saying that the c.i.a., the f.b.i. removes the references to al-qaeda in the talking points. to ple vent compromising and ongoing criminal investigation. they say, the senators say at 4:00 this afternoon, the c.i.a. officials contacted us and indicated that the acting director morrell misspoke in the earlier meeting and the c.i.a. says it deleted the al-qaeda reference, not the f.b.i. and unable to give us a reason why. one thing also about the al-qaeda being taken out, it was not just the five sunday shows blaminth spontaneous demonstration there wasn't, never a demonstration. susan rice said this. >> president obama said running for president he'd ro
they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target? then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america, in the capacity the state department that i would nominate her. >> are these republicans painting the president into a corner where he almost has to nominate her? >> they might and susan rice should send john mccain some flowers and thank him for this behavior, but the president's answer says why this is a good fight for him. if he takes them on over this, that is a win-win for this president because he will have a lot of people behind him, both in terms of public sentiment. we've got new polls today that suggests that where as people aren't quite thrilled with how the matter has been handled, they don't think the intention was to mislead the american people and other members of the senate have started to distance themselves from what i think is the three newest members of the bat crazy party. she went out and uses talking points not designed to mislead the american people, but were
by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role at the height of a contentious presidential election campaign by agreeing to go on the sunday shows to present the administration's position. >> now, she says she went on the sunday show, senator. it was political. but just four seconds after susan rice appeared on one of these sunday morning shows, john mccain appeared on the same show. was he being political? >> well, benghazi was a tragedy, loss of human life. and while that tragedy was unfolding, the republicans making political statements that were totally inappropriate. susan rice was given a responsibility, she responded to information that she had. i think the facts of benghazi speak for themselves. i think susan rice's role is well known, that she was out there with information that had been provided to her and that to hold her accountable for the aftermath when the facts became known, i think it's just wrong and the republicans from day one were wrong on this and it's a situation where americans should come together. on foreign policy iss
be payback time for democrats blocking the nomination. >> ooh interesting. >> bill: as u.n. ambassador under george bush. and bush ended up appointing him as an interim appointment or whatever they call that. right? >> which he can't do anymore. >> bill: so that could be what this is all about. but of course, john bolton is the one who said we ought to lop off the top ten floors of the u.n. he was hardly qualified to be u.n. ambassador. victoria jones in studio with us. we'll be joined very shortly by dan from the center for american progress. keep the conversation going. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. do you share the sense of outrage that they're doing this, this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>i think that's an understatement, eliot. u>> i'm not prone tot. understatement, so explain to me why that is. i think the mob learned from wall st., not vice versa.

. . >>> welcome back to "the ed show." thanks for watching tonight. the witch hunt against u.n. ambassador susan ryice is fallig apart. senators john mccain and lindsey graham have been accusing the obama administration of changing susan rice's talking points, following the benghazi incident. they claim links to al qaeda were left out for political purposes. but on tuesday, their conspiracy theory was blown out of the water. the spokeswoman for the director of national intelligence told cnn the white house wasn't involved in removing the information on al qaeda. he said the intelligence community made the changes. in responding to this report, mccain admitted that he was wrong, but still took a shot at the white house. he said intelligence officials, quote, told us they did not know who made the changes. now we have to read the answers to our questions in the media. this latest episode is another reason why many of us are so suspicious of actions of this administration when it comes to the benghazi attack. meanwhile, his sidekick, lindsey graham, is going into full attack mode. senator graham wr
